Sriracha in Toronto

I found some time ago a recipe for spicy noodles, and it calls for a tablespoon of sriracha sauce. I know that the red stuff in the rooster bottle in a lot of Asian restaurants is called sriracha sauce, but it's full of preservatives, and I don't want to eat preservatives. Where are some places to buy authentic, preservative-free sriracha sauce?

Stores in northern Toronto or near the subway are preferable because I live a 45-minute walk from Steeles Avenue, in Markham. Places in Markham would be even better.

      1. I can't imagine you not finding it in the Warden and Steeles area. Plenty of Asian markets and a T&T if I'm not mistaken.

          I never thought of T & T, strangely. Warden and Steeles is actually very far from me; I live in the west end of Markham, near Highway 7 between Bayview and Leslie. It's only one bus ride to a T & T though, so I'm happy. Thank you very much :).

            there are tons of chinese markets around that area. In the Times Sq plaza, in the Chalmers plaza, etc.

              I have a bottle that I bought at a large Asian supermarket around, if I recall correctly, Eglinton and Kennedy. It is imported from Vietnam, and is about half the price of the stuff from california.
